*Please note that this year we will publish the proceeding as part of IEEE ISBI  workshop CEUR Proceeding. Thanks to the chairs of ISBI 2022 for making this possible. The agreement was not reached due to time constraint!!! So we will be publishing it as online CEUR proceeding as our previous editions.
